What is FreeDiams

FreeDiams prescriber is the result of FreeMedForms prescriber plugins built into a standalone application. FreeDiams is a multi-platform (MacOS, Linux, FreeBSD, Windows), free and open source released under the GPLv3 license.

It is mainly developed by medical doctors and is intended for use by these same professionals. It can be used alone to prescribe and / or test drug interactions within a prescription. It can be linked to any application thanks to its command line parameters.

FreeDiams can manage multiple drugs databases. Some drugs databases are already available:

  • French (sources: AFSSAPS)
  • Canadian (sources: HCDPD)
  • USA (sources: FDA)
  • South African (sources: AEPI)

The interactions database (source: AFSSAPS) give access to many informations:

  • interactions by themselves
  • risk level
  • nature of the risk
  • management of the interaction

What does FreeDiams stand for?

FreeDiams' original purpose was limited to test pharmaceutical drug interactions within a prescription. So its first name was DrugsInteractions. With time, FreeDiam acquired the ability to produce prescriptions. So the name was… incomplete. It was renamed, before the version 0.0.10, to FreeDiams which stands for: Free Drugs InterActions Manager and preScriptor.
